Yahoo and Taboola Sign 30-year Partnership

Online publisher Yahoo has signed a 30-year commercial agreement with Taboola, the content recommendation engine used by websites including the Daily Mirror, NBC News, Business Insider and The Independent.

Yahoo chief executive Jim Lanzone said:

“Partnering with Taboola enables Yahoo to further enhance the contextual and native offerings within our unified advertising stack. The partnership also allows Yahoo and Taboola to continue to differentiate in market, improving user, advertiser and publisher experiences across properties, while benefiting from the long-term tailwinds in digital native advertising."

Tealium Launches the Identity Partner Ecosystem

Tealium, a customer data platform (CDP), has announced its latest set of enhancements to its suite of data-driven strategies to produce an improved trusted customer view.

"Customer data is the lifeblood of any business. With the sunsetting of third-party cookies and customers demanding more control of how their data is used, organizations need to future-proof their business now."
